Homes big and small, old and new all have the potential for pests inside and outside. There are many "solutions" for solving pest problems these days, though not all may be effective or safe. There are many Do-It-Yourself products, chemicals and traps available on the market all claiming to get rid of pests. While home remedies for DIY pest control may seem like the easiest and quickest way to treat a pest problem, in actuality it tends to be more of a hassle, a waste of time, costly and generally ineffective. 

But first things first! What kind of pest are you dealing with?

Pest identification is not always easy. You may think you have ants on your property when really they are termites. Are those bed bug skins? Proper pest identification can be very tricky and may involve getting an up close and personal look at your pest. This can even be dangerous in some instances. Professional pest exterminators have been trained to identify and locate pests quickly and will set up a plan with you for proper eradication. So, before you start treatment of any kind be sure you know what pest you are dealing with. 

Do-It-Yourself pest control can be dangerous for you, your family and pets. The improper use of pest control chemicals can result in rashes, burns, vomiting, trouble breathing and even death. Professional exterminators are trained to use pesticides. With the proper equipment and licensing to use the most advanced pest control techniques available, you can feel confident in in an exterminators ability to safely and effectively get rid of pests. 

Upon spotting a pest on your property your best option is to call in the professionals! It is equally as important to be sure you choose a quality pest control company like McCall Service when tackling your pest problem. When trying to treat pests on your own it can be dangerous and ineffective in the long run. Those few bed bugs that you missed will most likely multiply and within a month or two your bed bug infestation will be back with a vengeance. Click here to learn more about our home pest control!
